Neymar /Neigh-Mar: What Would £200 Million Get You in the World of Racing? Like most sports fans who appreciate the value of money and possess a modicum of common sense, Crowd Racing was absolutely stunned to read about this week’s £200 million transfer of footballer Neymar from Barcelona to PSG. After our initial shock, however, we got to thinking about just what £200 million might have got the architects of the transfer if they’d chosen to invest it in racing instead. Given that PSG’s financiers are from Qatar, too, it’s hardly beyond the realms of possibility. You […]
Below we have listed all the current Crowd Racing entries and declarations. Entries are not confirmed runs. Until the horse is declared, please do not assume these dates are certain runs! FLYING BEAR Flying Bear has been retired following some bleeding from his nose. He will go onto a new career now, but racing would have put too much pressure on the horse and may well have caused more bleeding. It is always sad for a career to end in this way, but we have to do what is best for the horse. MAJOR CRISPIES MC was claimed by […]
Born To Finish stormed to victory at Kempton Park under David Parkes, and in amongst the crowd of delighted owners was ex-footballer and now TV personality Ian Wright. As a part-owner of BTF, Ian was buzzing to see the horse achieve his hat-trick as you can see from the interview he did with fellow part-owner Oli Bell on The Racing Channel. Kempton Park are not the most helpful with Owners and Trainers Badges, but with a combination of our standard allocation, a few “paid for” O & T Badges, and some owners having other routes to the O & T […]
All of the Crowd Racing string are currently in work, at varying stages and this post includes a video clip of one of them, The Detainee. The Detainee is stepping up his work after a long break and is coming along nicely, and looks fantastic.
The latest addition to the Crowd Racing string, the wonderful Flying Bear heads to Lingfield Park on Saturday for the 345 race under David Parkes. He has a nice draw in 3, over the rapid 5f and he goes well on the track, plus there will be plenty of pace in the race with two committed trailblazers queued to slug it out up front. “The Bear” is a lovely racehorse, and is a consistent battle hardened sprinter. We are sure all his owners will have great fun following him for the next twelve months and with ownership costs ranging from £100 […]
As per earlier post, Sparkling Cossack is stepping up her prep for her debut and below is an excellent video of her going through her stalls test. We will have some shares available in Sparkling Cossack in the coming weeks, if you are interested in getting involved please email me on firstname.lastname@example.org
Sparkling Cossack is continuing her prep towards her debut run, and trainer Jeremy Gask has shared the attached video of her cantering at Danebury Stables. The video also contains a brief update on her schedule as she heads for a stalls test and then onto a racehorse trial.
Buy your share of Major Crispies this weekend to be entered into a prize draw. Major Crispies ran a cracking race at Kempton last week, confirming his talent and well-being and surely a win isn’t far away. He is a tricky ride, and needs settled and brought with a run and George Baker was so close to getting it right. MC finished an excellent second, giving the winner 5lbs. The image below from the Racing Post shows just how close the race was. Jeremy is confident that Major Crispies will be better over a little further and he is adapting his […]
Crowd Racing horse Major Crispies heads to Kempton Park Racecourse on Wednesday night to run in the 745. Ridden by George Baker, and carrying top-weight in this 0-80 contest, MC has a decent draw in 5 and steps up to 7f for the first time since joining us. Crispies already has some good form in the book over 7f and a mile, so we are looking forward to seeing how he goes on a track he has run well on before. We still have some shares available in MC, with options ranging from as little as £100. With all the […]
Trainer, Jeremy Gask has sent over a video of Crowd Racing horse Sparkling Cossack doing a nice piece of work yesterday. SC has needed a little longer than we had hoped to come to hand, but she is thriving and working nicely. The next step will be to get her to a racecourse trial to develop her experience, and then to an actual race. Exciting times!
